Summary: Excellent laptop. Fast Intel i7 processor. More than enough RAM memory for most users. Excellent screen; beautiful colors. I calibrated my screen, for photo editing. Great size for traveling. Windows 7 operating system so it is easy to use.
Summary: This laptop is fantastic. I have had it for over three years and have never had a single issue. My only complaint is that the graphics card isn't particularly powerful, but I knew that when purchasing it. I am about to upgrade to a more powerful machine, and I hope my next laptop treats me as well as this one did.
Very fast laptop that doesn't overheat or make noise
20 June 2014
Summary: I've had this laptop for over 2 years and am very pleased with it. i7 and a 2.8GHz processor make for a very quick response time. I typically have 5-6 programs running at a time, with 20-30 internet tabs open. I used to experience a slowdown in the loading times with other computers, but not this one. It's still opens 31st internet tab as it opened the 1st one.
It's ok - not as fast as I'd expected and feels clunky
Amazon Customer, Amazon
20 May 2014
Summary: This product is ok but not as fast as I'd expected and it has a "clunky/old technology" feel to the physical equipment. Also, a few days after I received it, it locked up and all I got was a screen full of errors saying it could not find certain necessary software (and I had an antivirus program installed!). I think the seller should have been more diligent in ensuring the product was operating ok.
Summary: A quick little machine for a kid just wanting to play minecraft or the everyday user just wanting to browse the internet or do some word processing .The processor really can put out some performance if you get a cooling pad/fan which would boost the performance enough to make the cooling pad/fan worth it. It can get a little warm when using it on high performance battery mode for long periods of time and has a very respectable battery life of almost 8 hours.
Summary: This is a widespread problem. Hundreds of posts on the internet. Computer constantly disconnects from wireless router. Total piece of crap. Apparently this is not the only ASUS laptop that has this issue. You will want to throw the computer out the window. Buy another brand.
Summary: I have owned about 8 laptops of different brands and sizes over the last decade or so, this is the only Asus I have owned. I bought it used as a backup laptop for traveling when I don't want to lug my larger one around and for the bedroom as I fall asleep to tv shows I have stored on different flash and external drives and have a small dresser of which my larger laptop doesn't sit on well.
Summary: Asus U46E Ral 7 works well, the Amazon posting didn't say it was a refurbished computer, but it seems to be working as expected. I noticed the hinge mount on the right side is bent: appears to have been tweaked when they repaired something on this laptop- I am holding my breath that this will not be an issue in the future. I doubt 90 days will suffice to cover whether or not the hinge will last.
